The longer front springs "unload" slower after being compressed than the old shorter ones. this keeps the front wheels from bouncing after hitting small bumps and therefore more grip ( you've all noticed how much nicer the evo rides the bumps yeah?)

Also, if you look at the part numbers, you will see that the old silver rear springs have the same amount of coils and wire diameter as the new "medium blues" or kit evo springs ( 4.5 x 1.6 )

If you still have the old springs, experiment with using the old rears on the front as well as the rear ( gold rears at the back, black rears at the front works well)..

Another trick - if you don't want to splurge on a full set of new shocks to be able to use the new springs ( smaller diameter) - flip the adjusters around and use the Mugen spring collets - works well!

Thanks for that explaination on the new EVO springs.

Hey everyone,

Im not sure if this question has been answered before, pardon me if it has.

What hop up options out of the EVO WCE kit are important hops up i should get since i just got a RRR Evo?

I dont want to assemble it altogether and later buy the hop up and having to reassemble it again.

Thanks.

Hi Jeff, what is the benefit of the FRP middle plate. On the topics of plates, does the FRP batt plate have any use. is it better to carbon one? Thanks

I'm giving this advice because my friend have problems with it.. doesn't hold well and strip very easy. I have a regular RRR with that part and never experienced problems
FRP is fiber glass reinforced, rigidty enough for this application and in my opnion better than nylon
Sorry but I don't use frp battery plate, maybe it can improve stiffness.. I prefer carbon fiber 3racing sell it

I'm trying to find the Kyosho clutch nut tool and the feeler gauge, I checked rcmart and rc-mushroom but I couldn't find them anywhere. Do any of you happen to know any other sites that may have them?

You can got to the V1RRR knowledge base and download the V1rrr evo manual there. (from rmdhawaii rctech.net)

http://www.nitrokb.com/vonerrr/

Or you can right click and save the following link which is the PDF direct.

http://www.nitrokb.com/vonerrr/31259.pdf

There is no WC version there though. Have you tried the kysho website?

Hi you migth want to try www.benracing.co.uk. They are based in the UK and I know that Ben had some in recently as I got hold of one off of him. Not sure if he has any left or what availability is like but might be worth a shot.
